NASA Information Q&A
« on: 07/12/2017 08:57 PM »
Just a quick question, is there a section on NASA's website (or anywhere) that lists all their RFIs, RFPs, RFQs, etc. ?

For example, I found a page, here: https://www.nasa.gov/directorates/spacetech/solicitations

But this can't possibly be a complete list, it doesn't show the next Mars orbiter, for example.

Might take some digging, but you should be able to find them on these:

https://prod.nais.nasa.gov/cgibin/nais/index.cgi

https://prod.nais.nasa.gov/cgibin/npdv/adhoc.cgi

https://www.hq.nasa.gov/office/procurement/forecast/

I've seen this site before too. I'm not clear on how exactly one searches it though, theres no keyword search function I can see anywhere. I see links to individual files on it frequently, and once I have one of those links I can pretty easily get a list of the other files in the same package by fiddling with the URL (made a quick program to brute-force this a while ago), but I can't find a built-in functionality for this.

I don't see a keyword search anywhere, but you can search by several categories here:
